- Cognitive control, goal maintenance, and prefrontal function in healthy agingJessica L Paxton
Department of Psychology, Washington University, Campus Box 1125, One Brookings Drive, Washington University, St Louis, MO 63139, USA
Cereb Cortex 18:1010-28. 2008..These results are consistent with the hypothesis that age-related impairments in goal maintenance abilities cause a compensatory shift in older adults from a proactive (seen in young adults) to a reactive cognitive control strategy...
- Effects of environmental support and strategy training on older adults' use of contextJessica L Paxton
Department of Psychology, Washington University, St Louis, MO 63139, USA
Psychol Aging 21:499-509. 2006..These results suggest that age-related differences in context processing can be ameliorated by directed strategy training or extended practice...

Department of Psychology, Washington University, Saint Louis, MO 63139, USA
Neuroimage 42:1577-86. 2008..The results suggest that activation and age-differences in lateral PFC engagement during WM manipulation conditions may reflect strategy use and controlled processing demands rather than reflect the act of manipulation per se...
